ELCO Heating Solutions has reinforced its sales and support teams with the appointment of Silviu Catana as Specification Manager for heat pumps, and Peter Collins as Areas Sales Manager for Scotland.

Catana will be responsible for supporting consultants and contractors in the effective design and installation of commercial heat pump systems. Working closely with the area sales team, he will ensure ELCO’s equipment is correctly specified to deliver the highest standards of sustainable heating and hot water. His role will also focus on developing relationships with new and existing consultants, offering technical advice through targeted CPD content.

Collins will be responsible for helping ELCO grow its market share throughout Scotland, driving sales of commercial heating, hot water, district heating and renewable products, including the company’s latest range of heat pumps.

Both individuals arrive at ELCO with a wealth of experience. Catana has worked exclusively in the heating industry since graduating with a degree in Building Services. His most recent role, which he held for seven years, focused on the design and management of air and ground source heat pump projects. Collins joins ELCO with over 30 years experience in the heating and plumbing industry, having worked in a variety of roles in consulting engineering, and more recently in sales – qualifying him as an expert in commercial heating technology.

Commenting on joining the ELCO team, Catana said: “Sustainable heating technology has a huge potential for growth in the UK market and the specification of these has increased dramatically in recent years. With an in-depth knowledge of heat pump technology, I’m looking forward to supporting consultants as much as possible, whether it is through providing schematics, CPDs or general design advice.”

Collins added: “ELCO’s range of products is superb and a prerequisite for quality and longevity, from the extensive condensing gas boiler range to its HIUs and hot water production. So, with such a great product portfolio, I’m looking forward to making contact with consultants and contractors in Scotland, and demonstrating how we can offer the complete package for commercial projects.”
